Puncture Resistant Base Layer Shirts

Looking for puncture resistant clothing?

Hi Tug,

I’ve been reading your website for a while and I think it’s amazing.

Thank you very much for sharing your knowledge with us!

I study Technical Apparel Design and am currently working on a project which is a kind of puncture resistant base layer.

The biggest challenge is to keep up with the comfort and soft touch that a base layer should have.

Have you ever seen something like that?

Do you have any ideas on materials?

Thanks in advance for your time!

good to hear from you and thanks for your question!

i have heard of fabric products in development that aim to reinforce standard fabrics.

here are a few articles that touch on “bullet-proof” related products:

specifically, this following article talks about scientists reinforcing cotton with boron carbide:

there are also some other companies making stab or slash resistant materials like:
turtleskin (link)
kevlar (link)
knife-proof t-shirt (link)

there are also some products that are slash-proof, but maybe not fully puncture resistant:
slash-proof clothing (link)

hope it helps!

if you come across any other neat technologies, please do keep me posted on your findings (:
